We are committed to offering a range of study options to allow students to broaden their knowledge and pursue their interests.

We have a mixture of on-site, off site, specialist instructor and facilitated subjects for students which allows us to resource a wide range of interest areas and curriculum requirements. As we grow, we will continue to implement new study pathways and provide access to learning areas that build on each students’ strengths with the aim of future employment or further study.

Those students who begin at Rivergum in Year 7 have an advantage in studying subjects a year in advance of their primary school counterparts, who would otherwise begin in Year 8 at public high schools.
